    If you doing a registry tweak, make sure to also reboot windows for it to take effect.

    These are some tutorials:

    Enable or Disable Driver Updates in Windows Update in Windows 10
    Prevent Windows Update from Updating Specific Device Driver
    Turn On or Off Device Driver Automatic Installation in Windows 10


    Dalchina had posted these earlier in the thread.


    The was a TF thread in which a member had reported incomplete block.
    Unfortunately I don't remember the members user name.

    As you haven't, I think, taken up my suggestion that you altert the author of those about that, why don't we invite comment from him?

    @Brink - Hi, as you can see above, Martinx2 is finding your tutorials don't work for him.
    Could you possibly provide any advice please?

    Thank you for your help.
    The only thing I haven't tried from this tutorials is using 3rd-party software to do this. But this is the last option for me.

    Windows Update is notorious about getting reset after an update making it very hard to disable driver updates.

    I found the best way is to use option 7 below to disable automatic updates with WUA Manager. This will allow you to manually select and install any drivers you may want, and hide the ones you do not.

    This is with regards to Windows Update am I right? I don't need to disable updates at this moment. I need to disable automatic drivers install from windows after I do clean windows install when there is no drivers at all.

    Correct. It's for controlling drivers via Windows Update.

    So my conclusion is that there is no way to disable automatic driver installs by windows other than disabling Windows Update service.

    That would be the easiest way, but that still will not stop any included drivers from being installed for supported devices.
